For the purpose of promoting the public health, safety, morals and general welfare of the community, the Village of Scotia is hereby divided into the following districts:
Said districts are bounded as shown on a map entitled "Zoning Map of the Village of Scotia," which together with all explanatory matter thereon is hereby made a part of this chapter.
Editor's Note: The Zoning Map is on file and available for inspection in the office of the Village Clerk-Treasurer.
Where uncertainty may exist with respect to the boundaries of any district as shown on the Zoning Map, the following rules shall apply:
Where district boundaries are indicated as approximately following any property or lot lines, such lot lines shall be construed to be said boundaries.
Where district boundaries are indicated as approximately following the center lines or right-of-way lines of any street, highway or railroad, such lines shall be construed to be such boundaries.
Where district boundaries are indicated as being approximately parallel to the center or right-of-way lines of any street, highway or railroad, such district boundaries shall be construed as being parallel thereto and at such distance therefrom as indicated on the Zoning Map. If no distance is given, such dimension shall be determined by use of the scale on said Zoning Map.
Where district boundaries are indicated as following a stream, lake or other body of water, said boundary line shall be deemed to be the center of said body of water unless otherwise indicated.
Where a district boundary line divides a lot in single or joint ownership of record at the time such line is established, regulations for the less restricted portion of such lot may extend not more than 30 feet into the more restricted portion, provided that the lot has frontage on a street in the less restricted district.
To provide easy reference to certain regulations limiting the use of property, the size and arrangement of buildings and lot area requirements, a Zoning Schedule for each of the districts established is hereby made a part of this chapter.
Editor's Note: The Zoning Schedule is included at the end of this chapter.
